Kahoohalahala never was elected as Lanai's councilman before. Everyone on Lanai knows he hasn't lived there in years. Why do you think he lost the vote on Lanai so resoundingly? It's only because the voters on Maui and Molokai don't know any better.

Sol did serve a term representing Lanai on the County Council previously. But I think he is to far removed from Lanai and what is really going on to be the better representative for Lanai. BUT I don't necessarily feel that the other candidate would have been effective FOR THE PEOPLE OF LANAI. What do you do.....Trust that their conscience gets the better of them and they do what is right....
